WILLIAM FM ewsTEn,? i ED/TOES.
SAM. G. WHITTAKER.
Wednesday Morning, Nov. 12, 1858,
It is said of a certain long-eared quadru
ped. whose firmness is proverbial, thtii,
'ttie more you urge him. the more he won't
go.' And the shrewd Bailie Nicol Jarvie
has given it as the result of his observation
that, 'a wilful man maun hae his sin way.'
Such a man vainly imagines that he is
making an admirable show of character ;
but to others, he looks very much like the
quadruped just alluded to, when he braces
himself against all entreaty ; and the wilful
quadruped is fully his equal in that char
acteristic, cei which he especially plumes
and prides himself. We pray heaven to
relieve us, in all time to come, from the
necessity of reasoning with men who en
case and fortify their reason (if they have
any) in the thickest shell of mere and sheer
obstinacy, that has not even an entrance to
it, We pity their wives.
`Ve do not think that the majority of
'straight Fillmore men' were lacking in
honesty of intention. Nor can we give
'lle most straightest of their sect' the cre•
dit of this wicked virtue of obstinacy.
Some of them, especially among the lead
ers a rid managers, have an 'easy virtue,'
that has not been able to brace itself back,
nor even stand upright, against the seduc-
tive influence of certain charms which they
have never been in the habit of resisting.
and which seem to them of a touch more
solid and serviceable natute than those
principles for which others contend. We
are sorry for the purchasers, if they paid
anything for the principles of these men ;
but, we imagine, that they oared for noth
ing more than to secure their services.
Well, they have them. We have uncle
up our minds to urge them no more with
arguments and entreaties. Their perseve.
ranee is incurable. They are joined to
their idols ; let them alone.
But we hoped that this class was coinpa
retively small in numbers, and that the
remainder had not seared their reason, as
misers had seared their conscience, against
all consideratious of public good. 'f.t
them wo had a word to gay If the oleo
tion of Mr. Fillmore had been urged thro'.
out this campaign, in good faith, (and will
they deny it has ?) how could his friends
refuse to support the union ticket, whose
success would give him the only Peimsyl.
vania votes that he could possibly have iu
the electoral college, and thus afforded to,
him a prospect of having his name brought
before the House of Representatives
4 where from first to last, (in the language
of Mr. Botts) the only chance of Isis glee
Lion r-ated.' Every vote cast fur the
sstraight ticket, was a vote cast against Mr.
Fillmore and for the Democracy. Andrew
Stewart, Amos A. LaWrence, John M.
Botts, Kenneth Rayner, and all the better
and more patriotic portion of the national
Fillmore men, north and south,---men who
understand the crisis that is upon the coun
try, and the future through which it must
pass,---were most urgent and earliest in be
seeching their party friends in this State
to vote the Union ticket. Did they appeal
in vain? Did the Fillmore men of this '
State spurn the counsels and entreaties of
the union men of the South, in order to
give the Democratic party a new lease of
power fur four years to come ? We trust
ed that the intelligent and patriotic among
them, would take the matter into their own
hands, and vote so as to secure what they
had always had at heart. tne defeat of the
Democracy. We were deceived.
In this way, and in no other, can the
Pierce and Douglas administratiou be pro
perly rebuked by an outraged people for
:heir reckless renewal of the slavery agi
tation ; for that unparalleled breach of the
pone faith, the repeal of the Missouri
Crnspromise ; for the wrongs which they
ha yr- permitted and instigated and permit

they have bartered the rights of the North;
and for their unscrupulous and revolution

Buchanan carries allthe remaining Slave tales
and Pensylvauia and New Jersey.
HOW THEY RUN.
In the New England States, Fremont
sweeps everything. Fillmore's whole
vote in the six New England States, will
hardly exceed Fremont's majority in Mas
sachusetts. Buchanan's majority in the
Slave States will not exceed Fremont's
majority in New York and Vermont.
Fillmore is defeated in his own ward,
his own town, his own county and his own
State, by tremendous majorities. Fremont
will have a majority of the popular vote
over Buchanan, in the United States, of
100,000. Bum for Freedom.
